This week, though, is all about middle grade and YA books!
And we are EXCITED! If you believe, as we do, that books are a gateway for us to learn about both ourselves and our world, the Scholastic Middle Grade and YA Fall 2017 lists do just that!
Whether it’s the plight of three children at different points in history seeking refuge in new homes or a girl who finds an outlet for her inner struggles in rock 'n' roll or sisters who are just trying to fit in at a new school, the stories presented are sometimes poignant, sometimes hysterical, but 100% relatable!
I’ll leave it to you to explore what book you would most like to read (and, of course, hope you’ll enter the contest to win an advance copy – see the end of the post!)
Here they are:
- Swing It, Sunny!
- The Apprentice Witch
- The Witch Boy
- Graveyard Shakes
- The Handbook
- The Incredible Magic of Being
- The Skeleton Tree
- The Secret of Nightingale Wood
- Who Killed Darius Drake?
- The Princess Imposter
- Have Sword, Will Travel
- The Secret Sheriff of Sixth Grade
- All the Crooked Saints
- Shadowhouse Fall
- All About Mia
- A Very, Very Bad Thing
But the fun doesn’t end with the videos!
